I would like to know what do you think about HTML5 mobile apps vs Native apps ? How many years to have the same feel of a Native app ?.
I've seen Android is the one that is too far away from iOS when We talk about HTML5 mobile apps. iOS is so smooth.
For example, what about if I want to create a 3D Dashboard with pure HTML5/CSS3/JS that feels like the one that comes in Android 4.1 (main dashboard). When you swipe between desktops it feels so smooth, the 3d effect is so cool, fast, very responsive.
Think about this. What about if I want to reproduce that same 3d dashboard in a html5 mobile app.
- How close I can get to reproduce that ?
- How much time We have to wait in order to have the same feeling and responsiveness ?
HTML5 is moving fast but every hit to the DOM is so expensive. Some CSS3 animations is now using the GPU, BUT, are We going to see the same performance between Native and Web apps some day ?.
